Kolkata Should Be Heritage City

Kolkata was the first capital of India during British Raj.
Archaeological Survey Of India maintains many century-old monuments of
the city like Asiatic Society, St. John's Church (Job Charnock's tomb
is here), Metcalf Hall, Clive House, Portuguese Church at Ezra Street,
the church for Jews at Brabourne Road, Bethel Synagogue and some other
churches of Kolkata. In addition, they repaired Victoria Memorial,
National Library and Jorasanko Thakurbari already. Hence, Kolkata
should be declared as 'Heritage City'.
